Flight Dynamics HUD Named Standard in BBJ and BBJ2
Boeing Business Jets said it plans to install the Rockwell Collins Flight Dynamics Head-up Guidance System (HGS-4000) as standard equipment in all BBJs and BBJ2s. In addition to traditional HUD functions, the HGS-4000 provides improved low-visibility takeoff guidance as well as runway deceleration cueing, readout of remaining runway length and unusual-attitude recovery cues, said BBJ chief pilot Mike Hewett. “The most advanced feature of the HGS-4000 will be its ability to display upgraded images,” he noted. “This will allow the system to be integrated with future enhanced vision systems, synthetic vision systems and surface-guidance systems.” A lighter and smaller combiner-projector system results in additional headroom in the cockpit. A retrofit upgrade program is under development by Flight Dynamics for BBJs fitted with the HGS-2350.
